Gearing up for the September 4 release of their new full-length album, WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW via PiL Official, the pioneering U.K. group’s own label (distributed by Red Eye in the U.S.), PUBLIC IMAGE LTD have announced they’ll return to North America for their first show in three years, a special performance at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans, LA on Halloween night, Saturday, October 31.
Says John Lydon in anticipation of their performance at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience:
 
“Bring a gas mask and I’m going to fart continuously. P.S: I want to see Donald Trump misrepresented with the greatest possible glee.”
Following their appearance at Voodoo Music + Arts Experience,PUBLIC IMAGE LTD will kick off their North American tour November 1 in Memphis, TN and continue through November 29 in Los Angeles.Tickets for Voodoo are available now at: www.worshipthemusic.com and the PUBLIC IMAGE LTD tour pre-sale is Tuesday, August 25-Thursday, August 27 starting at 10:00AM local time via www.pilofficial.com with the general on-sale on Friday, August 28 at 10:00AM. Read the story and watch the new exclusive PUBLIC IMAGE LTD video clip of the making of “Double Trouble,” the first single off WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOWtoday, via Pitchfork (HERE).
The 11-track WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW… follows the huge critical success of 2012’s ‘This is PiL’, the band’s first album in 17 years.  In her review for NME, Lisa Wright, described lead song off WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW, “The first taste of the record comes in the form of ‘Double Trouble,’ and it beats just as uncompromisingly to its own drum as you’ve come to expect from the man known as Johnny Rotten.” (July 6, 2015) Last month, the band premiered the video for “Double Trouble.” Watch the clip on YouTube (here), and listen on Soundcloud (here).  Fans can pre-order WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW… on iTunes to receive “Double Trouble” now as an instant download (here).
Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time, PUBLIC IMAGE LTD’s music and vision earned them 5 U.K. Top 20 singles and 5 U.K. Top 20 albums. With a shifting line-up and unique sound, JOHN LYDON guided the band from their debut album First Issue in 1978 through to 1992’s That What Is Not. After a 17- year hiatus, in 2009, LYDON reactivated PiL taking them back on the road worldwide. Last year, the band returned to Steve Winwood’s Wincraft studio in the Cotswolds (U.K.) to record the new album WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW… which is set for release on September 4 worldwide.
